The Home of Natural Wellbeing              

Newbold House

Newbold House is a beautifully maintained Victorian mansion in the north-east of Scotland, dedicated to wellbeing. 

Whether you need to drop into an armchair, have a tea by the woodstove, try an organic cookery course or nibble home-made biscuits out by our woodland grove fire, we can offer the perfect space to take a breath. 

We are a transformative retreat space and workshop venue with our own range of excellent educational courses about living sustainably, personal evolution and nature connection.

Run by a community dedicated to living lightly on the land - our intention is to make the best use of natural resources as possible and to provide a space for people to take a moment out of a busy life and reconnect with nature and themselves. Feel nurtured and rejuvenated by staying in our peaceful home embraced by magical woodland and set within the original Victorian garden. Our fantastic chef will ensure you eat creatively prepared, locally sourced organic food, much of it home grown. All that's left for you to do is rest and rejuvenate mind body and spirit. For our full online program of workshops and courses see our calendar of events.
